About Me


Finding a host for a good night in New Orleans!


Grew up in the Chicago Region, went to college in central illinois, and then started traveling the U.S. with various seasonal jobs in the West. Made my way to the dirty dirty south of Mississippi and will be here for a while. Trying to explore the south as much as possible now!


Everyone has something to teach you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As of now, surfing other couches!


I have not couchsurfed yet, but am looking forward to finding out what it is like. I've used air BnB but would love to try a new mode of getting around (cheaper!)


Most of my interests relate to the outdoors because I can't seem to get enough of it! I also love going to new cities, towns, parks, etc., and figuring out what is unique about them by exploring the bars, restaurants, different events going on, and the like. Adventure is my fix!
